In a surprising turn of events in Mark's Gospel, the narrative shows Jesus condemning the most religious of people while showing scandalous acceptance to others.

Instead of outward things, he points at the heart: humility, trust, and above all, love--qualities that are in fact much more elusive than mere outward conformity!
